Thanks

No. Results are inconclusive until someone else validates the same work unit.

"Validation inconclusive" is misleading on this project. Those jobs should be labeled as "Validation Pending", like they are on other projects. So, as previously stated, it's nothing to worry about. "Invalid" or "Error" are the only ones to be concerned with.

The message you see might indicate some other problem though. Typically that appears when BOINC is trying to use a GPU that's not working well. You'll need to do some troubleshooting to see what's causing that. Your host shows as having two GPUs, but your run times are consistent with BOINC trying to start a work unit on a GPU that it can't use for some reason. That WU then has to wait until a GPU becomes available. There might be a hardware issue. Load up a GPU monitoring tool like GPU-Z, HWInfo or System Information Viewer to see what your GPU loads look like.
